Hunters Kill 105 Deer During Morgantown's 2014 Urban Hunt


  Hunters killed fewer deer during Morgantown’s 2014 urban archery hunt than they did the previous year.

The city said Thursday that 105 deer were killed during the four-month hunt that ended Dec. 31. That’s down from 137 deer killed in 2013.

Local shelters and kitchens received 853 pounds of ground venison from 35 deer donated during the 2014 hunt.

Registration for a lottery for new hunters will begin March 1 and run through March 31.
